administration would be that romney's pledge to beef up the u.s. navy, which is the key service of interest to strengthen our position in asia. i think that's an important difference. >> woodruff: what about that resource question, michelle flour foi? noy. >> i think it requires reinvestment in the relationships which is happening which is a diplomatic effort. it does require some change of our military posture. but it's not just about number of ships. there are plans that are being put in place now to actually shift more of the navy into asia. what matters most is what are the capabilities of those systems? when you look at what this administration has protected and increased investment in, in its military budget, it is the capabilities to require to enable america freedom of action in a very contested environment in asia and elsewhere. >> woodruff: well, we're going to have to leave it there. we know the two candidates will be debating foreign policy on october 22. thank you both for being with us. >> woodruff: you can watch all of mitt romney's speech at v.m.i. today on our web site. >>
is that taxes for the 1%, the wealthiest 1% of households in a mitt romney administration will go down. >> i'm not sure of that. so, i mean, i think some of the things we've talked about, some of the things you talked about in your segment before, it's all about deductions limiting things versus income tax rates. there are a lot of things you can do with deductions. they missed a few things. there are other deductions that the tpc and gayle and other co authors that study will admit. you can get to income neutrality. >> you can get there though with get with some real political costs which is going after deductions that people really care about, right? i mean, you can do things to charitable deductions. in fact, the president in his first budget proposed capping charitable deductions. what happened was the entire world of universities, catholic charities, everyone else freaked the heck out and it got killed, right? you can go after the mortgage deduction. good luck. go around america and tell everyone that. >> it's worse than that because, in fact, right now with the property market as bad a
. the republican contender used today's speech to keep up his criticism of the obama administration. romney had a swagger. he's riding a wave of momentum after last week's debate. latest poll taken after the denver show count has the race tied at 47 among registered voters. president obama had a five point advantage in the three days leading in th debate theame poll found voters ovwhelngly sd romy won't debate, the biggest debate win ever recorded by gallup. bigger than clinton's 42 point margin over bush.4!zf[รง in los angeles last night musicians lent their support. mr. obama thanked the performers and threw in a not so subtle reference to his debate performance. >> the president: theyerfor flawlely, night aft nit. i can't always say the same. reporter: with the polls tightening the pressure is on vice president biden who squares off against ryan thursday night. karen travers, abc news, washington. >>> senator feinstein has called for a federal investigation into record gas prices we are pail. today's report shows san francisco averages $4.74 for regular oakland and san jose $4.68. those pric
of what you're saying about what a romney administration will look like is pred kalted on economic growth. what's the estimate you have, in you enact the things that romney wants to enact very quickly, adds 1% a year to gdp growth? >> yes, that's right. that's right. and i think you know, you cover this a lot, firms are sitting on cash. there's all this uncertainty over the fiscal cliff and the big deficits and how that will work out. i think we could unleash a sigh of relief rally if we could get ahead of the curve on policies. >> let me bring up something. you mentioned something earlier i can't avoid. you mentioned amtrak. let's take that as one example. >> you're not going to hate on amtrak, right? i use it a lot. >> i want to say one thing. i think -- you're going to hate me for saying this. i think wealthy people like yourself don't need a government subsidy to take the train. why are taxpayers paying for people who take the train? my point is we have to start getting sious good what we really need in this country in terms of government benefits. >> although guys like you wouldn't w
. and allowed ryan to articulate its new vision for women's rights. >> the policy of a romney administration will be to oppose abortion with the exceptions for rape, incest, and life of the mother. >> but if creating policy was solely up to paul ryan, there would be no exceptions. the legislation he co-sponsored proves it. vice president biden called him out on it. >> my friend says that he -- well, i guess he accepts governor romney's position now because in the past he has argued that there was rape, enforceable rape. he's argued in the case of rape or incest it would be a crime to engage in having an abortion. i just fundamentally disafree with my friend. >> joe biden is no left wing ideologue when it comes to abortion. biden told the audience last night he believes in the catholic church's teachings that life begins at conception, yet biden stressed he does not believe in imposing his faith on others. his record, well, it proves that. the truth is, mitt romney has embraced an extreme anti-choice agenda. if we are to believe all this stated positions on this issue, what's he going to do?
's a mistake for people on wall street to assume that a romney administration is going to change the declining dynamics and the declining profitability. a republican president is not going to be able to do anything about decreased trading volumes, is not going to do anything about lower commissions per trades or the general trend in the industry toward contraction. i agree with maria. there may have been some sarcasm in this ad, but it was kind of lost on me as well. it just seemed absurd. >> i don't get it. >> it's very inside baseball. that's the kind of commercial you would run in-house for the amusement of the staff members. to play it publicly is a little poor taste. >> or that "saturday night live" would have done. i don't think romney is reversing a lot of these trends. if you think that's going to happen, that's probably not the case. >> i think we're missing one thing. my point would be in the '80s, the interest cost of our national debt was 18, 19% of the budget. last year it's about 9%. if the ten-year treasury goes back to the 5% neighborhood, which it was in 2007, the interest on
women what they should fear from the next administration, should it be a romney administration, what is your concerns? what are the list of concerns you have? >> first of all, the thought that my daughters would have fewer rights than i do, or my granddaughters or other folks' children, women would literally lose the right to make their own personal decisions about health care, about having children is absolutely inkretdible. that is frightening. the other thing that's an immediate concern is planned parenthood. we see 3 million patients every year. many of these women, we're their only doctor. this is the one medical visit to get their breast exam, pap smear, family planning services and mitt romney says he's going to get rid of all that and doesn't even seem to care. there are millions of women in this country who are concerned. and access to health care, it's a basic economic issue. >> let me get back to the larger question of health care because we're on this topic, david. you know, i can't -- i think romney's got some pretty good political instincts out there, some chops i didn'
-- >> with all due respect that's a bunch of malarkey. >> under the romney administration we will have credibility on this issue. >> vice president biden. >> incredible. >> thank heavens we have the sanctions in place. it's in spite of their opposition. >> oh, god. >> it's been discredited by six other studies, over 100 criminal investigations have been -- >> martha. >> go ahead. >> martha, look. nobody is -- >> mr. vice president, i know -- >> this -- >> i know you're under a lot of duress to make up for lost ground -- [ laughter ] >> his debate performance was as much about style as it was about substance. did he overdo it? i don't think so. we'll get to that in a moment. i say it's just joe being joe. ryan took it in stride and tried to hold his own. look at all that water the congressman was drinking. does he have a strenuous p90x workout before the debate? you had a different experience than the viewers because optics and body language are crucial in debates. some say that is the whole ball game. in the guest spot we have bill mcgowan, one of the top media trainers in the country,
't agree with me on this, but the policy of a romney administration will be to oppose abortion with the exceptions for rape, incest, and life of the mother. >> outlaw abortion. the vice president himself, biden, joe biden, laid out his position and how he squares it with his catholic faith. let's listen to this. >> with regard to abortion, i accept my church's position on aborti abortion. life begins at conception, that's the church's judgment. i accept it in my personal life, but i refuse to impose it on equally devout christians and muslims and jews and i just refuse to impose that on others, unlike my friend here, the congressman. i do not believe that we have a right to tell other people that -- women that they can't control their body. it's a decision between them and their doctor in my view and the supreme court, i'm not going to interfere with that. >> let's get to the extreme ideology here. he subscribes to and he's a co-sponsor, paul ryan, along with todd akin from missouri who is fighting it out with claire mccaskill who made his notorious statements about so-called l
. and i respect people who don't agree with me on this. but the policy of a romney administration will be to oppose abortion, with the exceptions for rape, incest, and life of the mother. >> life begins at conception. that's the church's judgment. i accept it in my personal life. i just refuse to impose that on others, unlike my friend here, the congressman. i do not believe that we have a right to tell other people that women, they... they can't control their body. it's a decision between them and their doctor, in my view. and the supreme court-- i'm not going to interfere with that. >> woodruff: biden warned a conservative supreme court majority would overturn a woman's right to choose. ryan, who's on record favoring such a move, said abortion policy is best made by elected lawmakers. many of the same issues, from libya to taxes to abortion, could well come up again on tuesday at the second presidential debate. throughout the presidential race both sides have made women voters a strong focus. after last night's exchange we check in with pollsters from each party without cowrote
at conception. the policy of a romney administration will be to oppose abortion. >> i accept my church's position on abortion. i just refuse to impose that on others. >> laura: at last night's debate push the democrats war on women claim back to the forefront of the campaign? we will hear from both sides. caution, you are about to enter the no spin zone, the factor begins right now. hi, everyone, i'm laura ingraham in for bill o'reilly. thanks for watching us tonight. the truth about the debate. that's the subject of this evening's talking points memo. joe biden showed up last night in kentucky with twin goals, one, to blunt mitt romney's post debate momentum and two to give a boost to a democratic base that had become quite anxious after the president's terrible denver debate performance. i will give biden this much. last night he went from being a gaffe omatic to being a laugh omatic. >> the obama administration had the exact same position. let's recall that they disavowed their own now we have them in place because of congress, they say the military option is on the table but not be
agree we ought to be talking about what the next four years will bring because it looks like romney administration would just be one big surprise party. we have no idea what that is going to be like. so -- but i think the president and the vice president really do need to give the american people a clear sense of where they want to go. >> well, let's talk about that reset because, obviously the president did take a hit in the debate. and there have been a lot of headlines about worried democrats. do you think he needed to make the adjustments? we are hearing about it in his campaign. if he needs to do more, congressman, what is it? >> well, again, you know, i don't think the american people are really interested in who wins the fight between candidates. i think they want inform know what president obama is really willing to fight for. and he's talked time and time again about that -- necessity to invest in education and research and development and infrastructure. he has a jobs act program which is really a comprehensive program that embraces many ideas including many republican ide
romney. >> the administration has a problem with the libya story. everyone knows what happened and everyone read all of the accounts, these conflicting accounts and they vai problem with this. and they need to know it. they need to figure this out. and if biden says something today that turns out to be, can be proven wrong in the next couple days that actually divides president and president knew their requests for more security from benghazi to the state department and they're turned down, they knew it all along. that is going to be a huge problem. but this story is a huge problem if that is never determined and if he hasn't made a comment tonight. they need, president obama needs to come up with a straight answer that makes sense. before he is asked bit. he will be. next tuesday and the following week on the 22nd. >> your thoughts on the problem this political aspect of it? >> i thought that moment was the worst. the weakest moment for joe biden in the debate. he said we just didn't know. we didn't know there has been this request from people on the ground in libya. and sugge
differences between what a romney ad administration would look like and another four years of president obama might look like? >> even for a person who doesn't think badly of president obama's foreign policy i think it was useful because it reinforced america's need for engagement in the world. general scales was correct, there is military aspect to that which i personally may not consider necessary but i welcome the general tone of more engagement even if i don't think defense spending going up and. tired of wars. tired of unrest. discouraged by the anti-americanism, seen throughout broader islamic world and mood of come home america. let's mend our own problems and heal our own wounds for a while. that is understandable and partly i think right, if we take it too far we can get ourselves into trouble. governor romney arguing not for just more military spending but more effective foreign aid. better coordinated. arguing for a word dare i say sounds like nation-building. places like libya where he wants to do more to help countries get on their feet after revolutions before they have been thr
, that doesn't change the definition of life. the policy of romney administration is to oppose abortion with exceptions for rape, incest, and life of the mother. i have to take issue with the catholic church. why would they keep suing you? a distinction without a difference. >> i want to go back to the abortion question. should those that believe that abortion should remain legal be worried if you are elected? >> we don't think unelected judges should make this decision. through their elected representatives, they should make this determination. >> the next president will get one or two supreme court nominees. that is how close roe v. wade is. just ask yourself, the chief adviser on the court of r mr.omney -- for mr. romney, is he likely to appoint someone like scalia on the court, far right, that would outlaw abortion? i suspect that what happened. i guarantee you that will not happen. we have picked to people that have been open-minded. we picked people that had an open mind and did not come with an agenda. >> i will move on to this clause in question because we are running out of tim
/ryan administration. watch this. >> if the romney/ryan ticket is elected, be should those who believe that abortion should remain legal be worried? >> we don't think that unelected judges should make this decision that people through their elected representatives and reaching a consensus in society for the democratic party should make this termination. >> you know, that paul says it all. isn't that paul pause indicative that ryan knows that his views are really unpopular with the average american voter? margie? >> yes. and people compared that to a gore sigh but we had a ryan sigh. he gets this sort of -- he gets a little testy. he want to show that he has some spear yor tea. and republicans were on the wrong side of the opinion, even for voters who wear abortion is not necessarily there number one vote driver. it's the biggest gender gap in terms of importance of the vote. on top of that, for an all-time high, a couple polls show an all-time high of voters who say it's a certain set of values. that's new. we didn't used to have that. when ryan and romney say, well, this is what i believe in is tho
the country's power to shake history. romney also portrayed the administration as weak for changing its explanation for last month's deadly attacks on the us consulate in libya. >> this latest assault cannot be blamed on a reprehensible resolving israel. no, the administration has finally conceded these attacks were the deliberate work of terrorists. >> the obama campaign is dismillsing romney's speech -- is -- is dismissioning romney's speech -- dismissing romney's speech,. >>> the president is arriving here in the bay area. he's in kern county right now to dedicate a memorial to the late leader cesar chavez. he's speaking there. you can barely see him. he's greeting some supporters there. we'll have a report shortly from san francisco on the president's here to the bay area. >>> early voting begins in california today. if you want to vote early, just head to your county election office. however, most county offices are closed today for columbus day. ballots for people voting by mail will be sent tomorrow. 32 states and the district of columbia offer some form of early voting. >>> gaso
it was because of russia watered it down. mitt romney proposed these sanctions in 2007. the administration was blocking us every step of the way. only because we had strong bipartisan support for these tough sanctions were we able to overrule the objections and put them in in spite of the administration. look at what they are doing. they're stepping up their terrorist attacks. they tried a terrorist attack in the united states last year. talk about credibility. when this administration says all options are on the table, they send all these mixed signals. in order to solve this peacefully, you have to have the ayatollahs change their minds. look at where they are. it is because this administration has no credibility on this issue. this administration watered down sanctions. now we have been in place because of congress. the military option is not being viewed as credible. make sure we have credibility. under a romney administration, we will have credibility. >> incredible. do you think there is any possibility the entire world would have joined us? russia and china? these are the most cripp

like the last four years. >> romney said hope is not a strategy. administration policy weakened the u.s. and its allies while emboldening the enemies. >> with iran closer than ever to nuclear weapons capability with the conflict in syria threatening to destabilize the region and with violent extremists on the march, and with an american ambassador and three others dead, likely at the hands of al-qaeda affiliates, it's clear that the risk of conflict in the region is higher now than when the president took office. >> romney ripped the administration initial and insistence that the attack on the consulate in libya was a riot about a mob angry about islam movement. >> as the administration concedeed the attacks were the deliberate work of terrorists. >> team obama called the rhetoric erratic and wants a counterattack ad to run in virginia slamming the poorly reviewed european trip four months ago. >> if this is how he handles the world now, think what romney might do as president. >> eager to look resolute and ready to be commander-in-chief romney promised actions. >> for the sake of pea
that and it's lowered administrative costs and therefore a better deal. he said that romney's idea of premium support helping people buy insurance in the private marketplace, all economists agree the premium support will cause medicare to collapse. >> now that's an arguable point and i think that romney is going to engage him on those issues and try to continue to make the case for private sector health insurance. >> what i found interesting about this exchange is remember, obamacare was supposed to be romney's achilles heel throughout the primaries, his rivals said he wouldn't be able to challenge on that, and i think he proved a lot of people wrong. >> he pushed right through that and went on offense. >> and it's an example of his effort to reach across the aisle. >> bipartisanship, that's interesting. >> paul: let's look at an ad, a question how the democrats and obama is going to respond. the ad they rolled out after the debate. >> i'm barack obama and i approve this message. >> i'm not in favor of a 5 trillion dollar tax cut. that's not my plan. >> the nan partisan tax policies concluded

netanyahu. this is something the romney campaign p seized upon and criticized the administration for. the obama campaign, the white house is trying to paint mitt romney as an amateur when it comes to these issues to nullify his arguments or any of the arguments he's making. a few things they have seized on to do that, remember his foreign trip when he traveled to england, israel and poland. mitt romney made gaffes that got national attention. the obama campaign picking up on that. yesterday an obama spokesperson said only chevy chase offended more people when he went to europe referencing the national lampoon movies. that was echoed today. they also criticized him for the libya situation saying he responded without knowing what was happening in libya. president obama s of course, vulnerable on the issue of libya. we have seen his policies drop. that's their tactic, to accuse mitt romney of being an amateur on the issues. >> kristen in beautiful keene, california. thank you very much. up next, the political briefing. >> what do you mean? i better get ready for that. yeah, i better get
. this event in rural america at a family farm, governor romney said that in his administration he would implement policies that would help rural america to grow. >> there are big differences between the president and me the he has no plan if rural america. no plan for agriculture. no plan for getting people back to work. i do. i have spoken about it all over the country. i will help the american farmer, our economy and get america working. >>reporter: he said that policies the president want to pursue would hurt people this this part of the country. >>shepard: on issues, what are farmers say is at the top of the list? >>reporter: the big one is the estate tax. governor romney says he would repeal the estate tax if he becomes president. president obama would allow it to rise. the other big one is regulation. remember all of the hand wringing over the rumors the epa wanted to regulate farm dust? the labor department is looking at a rule to limit the amount of work that children under the age of 18 can do on farms. governor romney promised in his administration it would be different. >> yo
. governor romney promised in his administration it would be different. >> you have to have regulation. you need regulation for markets to work effectively. i am going to cut back on regulation and put a cap on regulation. any new major regulation will have to be approved by congress. i'm not letting the politician off the hook. >>reporter: governor romney has been telling personal stories on the trail. today he told a new one of a former navy seal he met at a christmas party this san diego. early this year he learned he was one of two former navy seals killed at the american consulate in benghazi. >>shepard: thank you, john roberts. president obama is scheduled to touch down right there in ohio in an hour. the president took off from california where he had fundraisers and told supporters he very much intends to win, filling the airways with new ads going after the republican rival. one that is getting attention goes after the governor using big bird. remember during the debate the governor said he would rather cut funding to public broadcasting than borrow from china which is a popular li
't defend himself against charges that mitt romney made of his administration that have been fact checked time and again on the president's side. and he didn't play offense. he didn't give a sense where he wanted to go. judy, vice presidential debate does matter because the democrats can't lose two in a row. they really can't. i think joe biden is in a stronger position because he has spent a lot of time, four years, defending, explaining and making the case for barack obama whereas paul ryan is in an awkward position. he's going to defend, make thease to mitt romney whom he has basically been joined to the hip at six weeks ago. and you know, he's got the whole independent political identity himself. i mean biden obama as a team at this point. but i think that the president, is just going to forget the first debate and be ready in the second one to make his case. and to engage. he wasn't ingauged. if you turn down the sound on wednesday night and just watch those two people, he is did not look happy to be there. and mitt romney did. >> what about the vice president, are the expectations n
itself. you are an ambassador in the bush administration. do you understand the romney foreign policy? >> yeah -- i'm not a romney -- >> i know you're not. >> but here's the point. the world is better off and america's better off if there's leadership from the united states. >> you think rhetoric matters is what you're saying. the policy differences aren't much. >> might not be material much, but i think u.s. policy, russia, trade is going differ. i think policy in the mideast is different and starting with your friends, working with the industrial democracies, showing leadership is an important ability block that romney is articulating that we're not seeing. >> i'm going to be a cynic here, tough on china talk. every presidential candidate talks tough on china. in office, never as tough as their rhetoric. >> 20 years ago was tough on japan. i think it's -- >> even clinton was going to be tough on china and wasn't. >> sure. he really overshot. he used the butchers of beijing and brought a lot of issues. i think our trade relation with china are generally positive, but there is an area
the president before the. the debate, romney will attempt to seize on the administration's -- this is by our account his tenth foreign policy speech of the campaign. romney's forays into foreign policy has been a mixed bag. from his rush to criticize the president on egypt and libya before all the facts were known. >> if you had known that the ambassador had died -- >> i'm not going to take hypotheticals about what would have been known. we responded last night to the events that happened in egypt. >> romney's effort to banish his foreign policy credentials with a summer trip was widely panned after romney seemed to insult the british handling of the olympics. his campaign spent weeks trying to explain why he didn't mention the war in afghanistan in his convention speech. today, romney will try again. arguing quote, i know the president hopes for a safer, freer and more pros% middle east allied with the united states. i share this hope, but hope is not a strategy. it's a message he previewed yesterday on the trail. >> i commit to you i will be a leader. when i'm president, i will take the ca
it take from whence we get past this election and the weather is the romney administration or obama administration, what could that administration do to actually change the facts on the ground? ..
romney was openly fabricating about administration policy and his own positions. and his failure to show any emotion, that belied to some viewers and voters a sense of weakness. >> thank you. see you next week. >> for a transcript of this broadcast, log onto inside a space >> inside washington is brought to you from the american federation of government employees, proud to make america work. abo afge and membership, visit
of the obama administration that republicans and romney are referring to? >> well, i think he's talking about what just happened in this fiasco in libya. governor romney had a good week talking about the economy. they want to definele what will be talked about this week on the if foreign policy front. they'll have a hearing about what went on the in libya on the security side leading up to the attack there. that's what he wants to set the stage for. if they talk about foreign policy this week, he wants it to define the terms on which we have that debate. >> because words matter, you started off with with saying i think that's what governor romney was talking about. an ongoing investigation into what happened in libya. obviously, aa he great concern. but you could not answer that question with certainty of what epic failure governor romney and republicans believe has happened over the past four years under this president's leadership, under secretary of state hillary clinton here. that is still unclear even after that 25-minute speech a couple of hours ago. >> he made the case that the middle
